The Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM) will be celebrating what makes us unique at Diversity Discovery Free Day on Saturday, May 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In partnership with Celebrate Diversity and University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, with the support of the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, this free admission day will feature all the fun of the BFKCM plus local non-profits and community groups with hands-on activities for families to learn, discover and celebrate diversity.
Along with the family-friendly, interactive activities, The Mielke Family Theater will have different programs including multicultural story time with the Appleton Public Library, the Oneida Nation Dancers and the Lawrence University Gamelan.
“The Building for Kids is a place where families can come and celebrate who they are every day,” said Jarrad Bittner, Executive Director at the BFKCM. “Diversity Discovery Free Day is a way to celebrate all of the different cultures and traditions make up the tapestry of our community.”
Diversity Discovery Free Day is supported by Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Community Foundation of the Fox Valley Region, Bemis Company Foundation, Mielke Family Foundation, Associated Bank, City Café, Schneider National Foundation and Shopko Foundation.
